Wood Floor Borders Common Questions
What is the border corner block?
CORNER BLOCK or BORDER CORNER is a border element designed to complement the border pattern, interrupting the flow of the pattern at the corners, usually at turns. Some hardwood floor borders do not require a corner block as they can be mitered 45° in turning points. Please allow for an additional border quantity if mitering the corners. 45° "turning blocks" are available at twice the regular corner price.
Can you make a curved border?
We can make curved border sections to fit a specific area for an additional charge. You would need to provide the template or AutoCAD for the curve or precise radius.
Can I install the border right next to the wall?
We do not recommend installing borders without space to the wall. Walls are never perfectly straight, and the border may not align. The apron area can be filled with regular strip flooring. You may create a nice "rug" effect by installing strip planks at 90° to the wall. A typical distance of the wall is about 12 inches. Minimum 6 inches recommended. You can move borders further off the wall if needed. This apron area will allow you some "play room" to adjust border placement and alignment at the corners. We recommend to dry-lay the border on the floor first.
What is the length of the border section?
The section length varies and depends on the pattern repeat of the design. Typically, it is between 2 and 3 feet. It is irrelevant for the most part. The border is made in such a way that the design is continuous. Given your required border length, we will provide whole border sections to cover this length.
